I have cruised the US Golf Coast from Texas, Louisiana down to Florida’s East Coast.sailed the coast of Mexico from San Diego to Acapulco de Juarez and sailed again from San Diego along the coast of Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, to Costa Rica down the Coastline to Panama and transited the Canal and proceeded to Florida’s west coast.


From Mathew’s seaman’s log:


I was in the United States Navy, I was in the Vietnam conflict Yankee Station Gulf of Tongan, at which time We, weathered 

4 Typhoons, so I have some heavy weather adventures. Along with several days at the sea in less then desirable sea conditions on Yachts. I have logged over 75,000 miles cruising plus over 300,000 miles at sea in United States Navy.
